to make sure america leads the world in research and technology and clean energy. i want to put people back to work rebuilding our roads and our bridges and our schools. [applause] that's how we grow an economy. i want us to bring down our deficits, but i want to do it in a balanced, responsible way. and i want to reward -- i want a tax code that rewards businesses and manufacturers like detroit diesel right here, creating jobs right here in redford, right here in michigan, right here in the united states of america. [applause] that's where we need to go. that's the country we need to build. and when it comes to bringing manufacturing back to america -- that's why i'm here today. since 1938, detroit diesel has been turning out some of the best engines in the world. [applause] over all those years, generations of redford workers have walked through these doors. not just to punch a clock. not just to pick up a paycheck. not just to build an engine. but to build a middle-class life for their families; to earn a shot at the american dream. for seven and a half decades, through good times a
range missile technology. north korea's committee of space technology said engineers found a technical problem with the first stage of the three stage rocket. the committee announced it will extend the period for lauhing byne week. north korea said it will launch the rocket between december 6th and the 22nd. the international maritime organization, and the international telecommunication union said they were told of the extension on monday. the maritime and aviation bodies use it for flight trajection. they have not provided information about a satellite's frequency or orbit. the international community should take serious action against north korea if it goes ahead with the law firm. north korea domestic media have not reported the plan to launch a rocket. >>> hillary clinton wants to persuade leaders to take a different path. she's appealing to china for help. ate departnt spokespson said clinton spoke by phone with foreign minister. >> the question was what influence china could bring to bear on the dprk to see reason and focus on the develop of their country and feeding of their pe
. that this is a testbed. a platform in space for the air force to test new technologies, avionics, command and control, thermal protection, high heat protection, seals, all the kinds of things for, you know, the development of new technologies in the air force and in the middle. so that's what they're saying it is. >> but the conspiracy theories are fun, zarrella. and the reason i say that -- >> absolutely. >> the chinese are not happy about this. they've been sending over like official protests. and i do appreciate the opinion they give. i was reading a little while ago about frank roads, the deputy assistant secretary of state for arms control, verification, and compliance. it's a mouthful, but what he said was was, to avoid misconceptions based on mistrust, it's important that we build transparency in space and elsewhere. that's not very transparent, though, is it? >> not at all. in fact, there's one aerospace expert that i've known for years, who in an article recently said, you know what, this entire program may be nothing more than flying this thing in order to keep the chinese wondering what it
and veterans. i spent more than 20 years in the wind industry as a technology development engineer. in those days we saw some spectacular failures and dramatic failures, but every year we put more into the technology development. little bit this year in the aerodynamics, gear box, foundation, every year a little incremental improvement in the control systems, field testing so we understood what was going on and the power electronics, and today we have an industry that is a spectacular industry. . the touchins produce power for five cents per kilowatt. it's been a successful business. the united states dominated that business because of consistent policies, consistent tax policies. we could rely on the policies being there year after year. investors came in, engineers came in. in the early 1980's those policies began to change and the technology began to leave our country and we've seen -- i've seen in my career the incentives come and go over the years. i can tell you it's devastating to the industry. it takes years to develop the infrastructure to produce wind turbines. the barings are 20 f
in our country -- science, technology, engineering, and mathematical workers and our country. sometimes they are talking about skill gaps wenwhere there is not enough to restore connection between how we do worker training and skills that are open in particular areas. all three of those are important skill gaps or skill issues, but they do not take with them the same policy solutions, and as we move forward, i believe that places like cap and others can help us to define which issues on the policies that address them. i suggest that we will be strong as one we have the larger skills comeback. many people come from silicon valley and talk to us about the need for high skilled immigration, and i agree. we do need to do more on high skilled immigration. the president agrees. but it is is stronger case to make that to the american people if that is one component of the strategy. one, not just of a comprehensive immigration strategy, but one component of a larger skills strategy which also talks about how we can increase the number of skilled workers coming from our country, u.s. schools, u.
korea is on its way to developing technology to launch a rocket at the united states's west coast and hawaii. officials tell cnn that the working assumption is that the north koreans got outside help from others, including iran. so today's launch is raising some huge concerns. let's go to our pentagon correspondent barbara starr. i assume they are pretty surprised and alarmed by the successful launch over at the pentagon? >> look, wolf, because of everything you just mentioned, indeed, the u.s. military, the intelligence committee have been watching north korea for days now 24/7 because they did expect to launch and they announced it. but they were having technical problems so a lot thought it wouldn't happen until next week. when it happened last week, there was a surprise. the north korean anchor's excitement was clear. >> announcing the launch of a long-range rocket that put a north korean satellite to orbit around the earth. they clearly achieved one goal raising everyone's anxiety level. >> this is a step towards the ability to build a long-range missile that could strike par
of solar energy during his time at the white house. though new technology didn't catch on as fast as he had hoped. >> back in 1979 you famously put solar panels on the white house and you said, and i'm going to quote here, you said, either they would be a curiosity, a museum piece, or they would be a small part of one of the greatest and most exciting adventures ever under taken by the american people. i'm sore troy say the solar panels are at the smithsonian, they are museum pieces. what does this say about our commitment, where we are today, in protecting the environment? >> well, it says that the protection of environment goes up and down in america. basically because of the attitude of the president. and when president reagan came in, he removed the solar panels and sent them to a college up in, i think, connecticut. now we have one of the solar panels at the carter center, the museum, and number one producer of solar panels in the world in china, also bought one of the solar panels. so they have brought a lot of money in for that small college. we need to have consistency in america an

across the table and president reagan said i will share with you the technology of the strategic defense initiative. gorbachev said you won't even share with us milking machine technology. those of us who were no takers stopped taking notes. we had never seen an exchange like that. these two men arrived in minivan and reykjavik with the dialogue in place, a style with talking with each other, respect for each other which is palpable and a belief that each could probably deliver on what they were talking about. very important. everyone knows the talks broke down. what was there was the agreement that there would be 100 long-range on each side, europe would be free of such missiles and 100 would be placed in soviet asia and for the united states, hundred missiles would be placed in alaska. hard to say. it will be 100, and gorbachev set off at that point on the circuit to try to use sdi as the obstacle to progress and somehow get us to except the difference. meanwhile at reykjavik on the telephone, get to basic countries before the press called each of the basic countries and their leadersh
's the proud result of the workers' party's policy on science and technology. >> reporter: the last time they trade this back in april north korea's multistage rocket disintegrated a few minutes after takeoff. but this time it seems they got it right. the only pictures we've got come from the control room's big screen t.v. but we can see the rocket leave the launch pad and climb into the upper atmosphere. we're told they put a satellite, the shining star 3, into orbit. this country may not be able to feed its own people but its engineers can fire things into space. "it's made with our own technology and our own strength" says the director of the command center. the country's boyish looking supreme leader, kim jong-un, has disregard it had will of the international community and enhanced his own credentials with the military at home. some hope he'd take a more reformist approach one year after the death of his father, kim jong-il, but those hopes have been dashed, it seems. in south korea, protesters took to the streets burning flags and portraits. and the international community added it

at china. they are not as technologically advanced as far as military. they have one aircraft carrier and a small air force. that question was dodged. wheat dominate militarily and with nuclear-weapons compared to the rest of the world. there was a fear that it would become too powerful. here we go again with across- the-board cuts when we should be looking at the contract situation. there is a system with the defense department and contractors. there is a lot of waste going on in purchasing. the defense department succeeds all other areas of government. everybody supports our defense. i believe are most important national interest is our own people and putting the funding into rebuilding the urban areas of the united states and bringing poor people up to a standard of living where they can get by. we spent over $300 billion on and afghanistan. guest: the caller is correct when he talks about china. they are just barely beginning to use aircraft carriers and things like this. they are much more focused at home. it is of concern a rise in china but not at the level of the united states
